Here at Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast, the Trillium, Dutchman's Britches and Jack in the Pulpit are gracing the woods, the effervescence leaves are exploding on the trees, the squirrels and chipmunk's are having the time of their lives with all the new seeds. Spring time is upon us, Life is good! Looking for something to do tonight, here's a suggestion...


Head over to the free movie at the Saugatuck-Douglas Library to see the movie "I KNow Where I'm Going" (1944) with Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger as co-directors and starring Wendy Hiller and Roger Livesay. The story is a gem of romanticism ...Here's the plot...

Joan Webster is an ambitious and stubborn middle-class English woman determined to move forward since her childhood. She meets her father in a fancy restaurant to tell him that she will marry the wealthy middle-aged industrial Robert Bellinger in Kiloran island, in Hebricles, Scotland. She travels from Manchester to the island of Mull, where she stays trapped due to the windy weather. While in the island, she meets Torquil McNeil and along the days they fall in love for each other.
The show starts at 7 p.m. Free admission and free popcorn.



Take a long walk along the wide sandy beaches of Lake Michigan and smile at the greatness of the big pond. Why not visit the Saugatuck Dunes State Park and take a long walk through the woods, it will be just beautiful. The trees are just beginning to bud. Take a walk along the lakeshore, 


Dinner suggestion..head over to Coral Gables, you can sit on the upper deck and wathc the sunset over the trees.
